Love the picnic atmosphere, Richard.
Richard Standley: This would not be possible today Ray...
Il y avait beaucoup de spectateurs pour cette course. Il devait faire sacrément chaud.
Richard Standley: En décembre, en plein été dans cette partie du monde Martine!
Bonne soirée
You had a very good point of view, here!
Richard Standley: Indeed Elizabeth! Thank you.
I would guess that not much has changed there since 1974, Richard...except for apartheid?
Richard Standley: I wonder Ginnie...

La forme de ces bolides me fait replonger dans un passé ... pas si lointain

Richard Standley: Des Matra de l'époque JP!
Bonne soirée
That looks a huge circuit Richard.
Richard Standley: Kyalami used to be the SA Formula One Grand Prix circuit until 1992 Chad!

Oh, the noise I can imagine.

When the picture opened, I thought that this looks just like Kyalami. I attended the 1972 Nine Hour and on that day, the first Boeing 747 being delivered to the SAA did a low flypast. That thing was so huge ... Then 26 years later, I flew in that 747 on my way to Bangkok.
Richard Standley: Great souvenirs Louis! The very first time I flew in a 747 was in 1977 for my very first visit to the northern hemisphere from Jan Smut's Airport...
Right up my street, (see next week) probably the most famous racing circuit in South Africa, I have seen racing on television from there at various times. Interestingly those upright poles in the run-off areas were done away with after some years world-wide because they were dangerous for motorcycle racers if they crashed.
Richard Standley: Well observed regarding the upright poles Brian. I have been there for quite a few Formula one Grand Prix races.
Takes me back to when I used to go shooting motor racing, Richard, happy days.
Richard Standley: They were happy days indeed Frank!
A famous name from motor racing history. Not been a grand prix circuit for many years I think
Richard Standley: The last Grand Prix took place in 1992 Bill!

WOW that is a real golden oldie..... and nowadays, nobody would be allowed to sit in that corner, this side of the road.....if the cars don't make the corner, you have them in your lap...
Richard Standley: Quite right Astrid! Safety has improved so much since then...

vintage et sympa...
Richard Standley: Merci Olivier.
Bonne soirée
I would love to visit SA one day!
Richard Standley: I spent ten fabulous years between 1974 and 1984 over there LC!
What a great memento.
Richard Standley: It is indeed Daryl!
Oui, même ambiance qu'aux 24 h du Mans auxquels j'ai assisté de nombreuses fois, habitant tout à  côté et bossant durant 2 années à  l'ACO
